Cracking turnaround, Love a clean finish on BMW black paint. Although sorry to burst the bubble, it isnt a twin turbo. BMW’s Twin power is a Twin scroll, single turbocharger.

On the screenwash, My M140 takes just short of 5L to fill. Usually have one of my old 5L AG screenwash drums premixed for ease of fillin

I think you are partially correct.
The smaller engined BMW's use the twin scroll turbocharger and going from the single tailpipe I'm guessing the car in the op is the 2d.
The larger engined 335d uses 2 seperate turbos.
As they all share a similar engine cover "Twin power" is (deliberately?) confusing.
The d variant fitted to some 5, 7 & X series had 3 seperate turbos.

You are definitely correct with the comment on turnaround with which I wholeheartedly agree - great job

They love to cause some confusion. I had the tough job of informing a mate that his M235 wasn’t a twin turbo

The 3 turbo engined models are something else. Ive been in am X5 M50d briefly and its as quick to 62 as my m140 when stock, frightening!
